Wilderness Elk

Checked some cameras this past week. I thought I'd share a few videos of bulls that you won't see in the lower wintering grounds :tup:

Nice captures!

Looking forward to hunting this area for the first time this coming year. Moved here in October. Trying to get several of my family into it. Wife wants to hunt archery, so I'll do that too. Going to have several kids hunting rifle. Have to figure out which tags to apply for.

Have to put 5 thru hunter's safety in a couple weeks!

Thanks for sharing.  What is the food source that puts a bull right in front of your cam?  I would have imagined more snow in the wilderness this year.

I don't tell what I put out in front of the cams. It's about as effective as heroin. Once you use it once, you are hooked for life.

This camera was 1.3 miles out of the wilderness and put in a naturally warmer area. Not much snow hangs around in the winter which makes for a good wintering spot.

These videos were from early winter. I'm not going to share the best videos I have.

I believe it's because AVI files aren't supported by the iPhone. I can't watch them either.

I put the cameras up on Saturday for the winter. I saw a dandy 6 point in the area that made it. Elk are still high with a few local bulls down low in the unit. I am glad to say the 7 bulls I was watching in the area during modern elk season survived.

If the snow level stays high next week, I may try to get into the area again, but otherwise that's a wrap for 2017 in this part of the unit. Hopefully the batteries last until March.
